Why anyone would think it is a good idea to insult a police officer is beyond me! However, it happened recently to a police officer from Alexandria who visited a local restaurant called Noodles & Company. One of the cooks came out of the kitchen and said that they were “not serving that” referring to none other than Police Chief Earl Cook.
He took it up with management as he was not very impressed with their level of customer service.
Cook said, ““Well, your first response as a police officer is anger. These are very difficult times right now with our relations with everyone, and to have one of my officers treated in that manner unnecessarily — your first response is anger, then you calm down a bit.”
Noodles & Company responded positively.
They immediately fired the cook and posted this statement.
Well done to the restaurant for acting as they did!

Every now and then, a story pops up of a restaurant employee refusing service to police officers, spitting in their food or drinks, or writing them rude notes on their receipts. These stories never end well, yet people apparently never learn. And when one employee insulted a Virginia police officer, she learned firsthand why that always backfires.
